We’ve become frustrated with inactivity. Maybe you have, too? There is a lot of infrastructure work out there that needs to be done and yet politics have gotten in the way. Rebuilding our infrastructure is an essential investment in our safety and economic future. We must work together with legislators of both parties to find solutions. Check out our video gallery showcasing local infrastructure projects, careers in construction and leaders involved in moving Southern California forward.
SB 1 Projects
Riverside – Trains and Grade Separation
As freight trains become longer and longer in order to handle the increased amount of goods shipped throughout ports, cities and counties have experienced the impact of that increased train traffic. The amount of time that commuters and emergency first responders spend at railroad crossings has increased. The County of Riverside is responding to the problem by building bridge grade separations, which allow commuters and emergency responders to get to fires and healthcare emergencies quickly. The bridge and grade separation projects will save lives.
